Service Provider Foundation is a new set of APIs for System Center that will be released in System Center 2012 SP1.   These APIs are designed to enable hosters (or a central enterprise IT organization acting as a hoster for the rest of the organization) to build custom user experiences around System Center and to automate their datacenters.

Symon Perriman interviewed Marc Umeno, Senior Program Manager on the System Center engineering team at TechEd North America last week.  Watch this video to get up to speed on these new capabilities that were just released as part of the System Center 2012 SP1 CTP2.
